If you decide that mediation is the best option for you and your spouse, you’ll both sit down with a neutral mediator to discuss and resolve the issues in your divorce that haven’t yet been agreed to.
Because mediators are an unbiased third-party, they will not be on your side or your spouse’s. However, that doesn’t mean that all mediators are the same or that you should go with the first one you find.
Finding the Ideal Divorce Mediator/Practice
Choose a Practice That Specializes in Mediation
Some law firms offer mediation services as an option, however, it’s not often their specialty. At Peak Mediation, mediation is our primary focus. We believe that well-intentioned couples can save time and money by peacefully resolving their legal disputes through the mediation process.
Look at Past Success Rates
During your initial consultation, don’t hesitate to ask about the practice or mediator’s success rate with cases similar to yours. Knowing that your mediator has the knowledge base and expertise needed to achieve a peaceful resolution can help you feel more confident and in control.
Choose a Practice With Tailored Services
Every family’s situation is unique, which is why we never offer a one-size-fits-all approach to mediation. In an effort to save you time and money, we encourage you and your spouse to choose a program that matches your needs.
Understand How You Will Be Billed
In general, the cost of mediation pares in comparison to the cost of litigation. That being said, you want the practice you work with to be very transparent in their pricing. At Peak Mediation, we work hard to provide transparent pricing, control difficult situations, and avoid unnecessary fees. If you need to schedule additional sessions, we can provide upfront pricing.
Ensure the Practice You Choose Will Help Every Step of the Way
Once you and your partner have come to an agreement, it’s important to make sure all legal requirements are fulfilled. At Peak Mediation, we’ll also help you submit your agreement to a court for approval.
